The Alien Encounters is a 1979 science fiction film written and directed by James T. Flocker. It is an American B movie which follows the story of an investigator who is sent to locate an alien probe which has landed on Earth. Aliens from Barnard's Star have created a machine known as a betatron which has remarkable rejuvenating effects.
Described by leading science fiction author David Wingrove in his Science Fiction Source Book as a "Deathly dull B-movie UFO story with dire effects and no real encounters at all...Endless desert scenes and interminable talk-overs disguise crank concerns of writer/director James T. Flocker", the film received generally poor reviews.
Filmed in and around the Calico Mountains (California) including Mule Canyon Rd. and scenes on the lake bed, off Ghost Town Road and Interstate 15, 7 miles north of Barstow, Ca.
